This is a
very up-scale rifle I just completed. It has a Virginia
Winchester school styling. Barrel is by Colerain. It is
a swamped .45 caliber octagonal and is 44" long. The
stock is a nice piece of curly maple that has been aged.
The lock is a L&R Durs Egg. The buttplate, guard and
sideplate were cast here in my shop and are sterling
silver that have been engraved and aged. The wire work
is sterling silver. The overlays that appear to be brass
are actually 14k gold. There are gold bands at the
breech and muzzle. The touch hole, lock pan and bottom
of the frizzen are lined with gold as well. The star on
the cheek is made of ivory and black horn.
Weight is 7 lbs.
8 oz. Length of pull is 13¾".
